Get painting

In a well-ventilated area (the backyard or garage works well), spray or paint the candlesticks with an even coat of paint. We used Benjamin Moore paint  in Tangerine Zing, Redstone and Tangerine Melt. Once dry, turn candlesticks upside down and repeat.

Tip: If using spray paint, place the candlesticks inside a box so that it doesn’t get all over the area you’re working in.
